Volunteers are an essential part of any community association. Enlisting and retaining enthusiastic, quality volunteers can be a challenge, but following these steps can help create long-term partnerships.
Many homeowners who live in a community association may not understand how it functions. CAI’s new guide aims to provide an introduction to community association living for those who live in, work for, or participate in a homeowners association, condominium community, or housing cooperative.
2020 has been one of the most difficult and stressful years ever, and has made a tough job even tougher for board members and managers. It’s normal to be feeling anxious, nervous, or sad, but it’s important to take care of yourself so you can better support your community.
Dealing with upset homeowners is likely the least favorite part of a board member’s role. Associations can follow these steps to de-escalate tense situations and work with residents to resolve issues in the community.
In the early days of COVID-19, CAI staff and community association board members, community managers, and business partners stepped up to provide valuable information and resources to help communities challenged by the pandemic.
